Entries have opened for the inaugural Lambition Awards which aim to celebrate Australia’s top sheep and wool producers.
Hosted by Australian Community Media (publisher of this website), the three awards will honour the Meat & Livestock Australia Sustainable Producer of the Year, the Marcus Oldham Flock Leader and the Farmgate Auctions Industry Innovator.
These events were held in conjunction with the Australian Sheep and Wool Show, which was forced to cancel in 2020 due to coronavirus.
Ms Cleeland said the three awards would provide entrants with an opportunity to tell their stories to a wider audience via ACM’s huge rural and regional readership.
“We would really encourage all sheep and wool producers and those actively involved in the industry to take a look at the criteria of the awards and consider applying,” Ms Cleeland said.
“These awards are a great opportunity for a seedstock or commercial producer, industry leaders, consultants or product and service providers to highlight the fantastic work they are doing through our substantial media network.”
The MLA Sustainable Producer of the Year award seeks to showcase sheep producers using industry best practices to meet growing consumer demands for sustainably produced wool or meat. The winner will receive a cash prize of $1000.
